Medicines information on PDA.

Most patients don’t view their doctor as a tech-geek and I am one among them. The reason for this impression is I don’t find them using computers in their clinic.

Their cubicle is always empty but for a steel stool and the ubiquitous bed for examining patients.

Now, I think I must change my impression. Physicians now are hi-tech and are always connected to the latest medical news and information. Thanks to Epocrates, the world’s leading medical software company, more than 50% of doctors own a PDA that is loaded with drug reference guide, a medical software with which clinicians can immediately access the information needed to make prescribing decisions – such as drug dosing, side effects and health plan coverage.

I think PDA itself is becoming obsolete and iPhone is taking its place. And Epocrates is quick to see this change in trend and they allow physicians to access medical information through m.epcorates.com on their Safari web browser.

This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.
